 Posted by Chantel Martiromo  

Human skin pigmentation is the result of natural selection evolved to prevent damage to skin through regulation of ultraviolet radiated penetration depending to the production of melanin in the skin cells.
1. Hypo-pigment
a. Vitiligo is defined as a condition of destruction of cells that give your skin its color, causing white patches on your skin.
b. Albinism is a congenital disorder causes of complete or partial absence of pigment in the skin, hair and eyes as a result of restriction of the skin cells from producing melanin
2.Hyper pigment is a result of over production of pigments of certain cells in the skin, causing skin darkening in some area, such as tan or brown patches, commonly on the facial skin
3. Skin discoloring is a result of discoloring your skin in specific spots or very widespread
4. Chloasma is the appearance of brown patches of pigmentation on the forehead, cheeks, and neck

Epidemiological studies, linking herbal medicine in skin lighting may have produced certain interest results(a)(b)(c).
Chinese gall (Wu Bei zi)

Chinese gall extract in the testing against mushroom tyrosinase activity inhibition, using ultraviolet A (UVA) or alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH) to stimulate B16 cells showed a promising effect in inhibition of melanin biosynthesis associated with hyperpigmentation in a dose-dependent manner, according to National Chiayi University(7). In Mouse melanocyte cell lines, water extract of Galla Chinensis, showed to exhibit higher depigmentation activity, affecting lower tyrosinase activity(8).
